Dartmouth Park and Ride

The Park and Ride service is managed by South Hams District Council, and runs between Easter and the end of October, every 10 minutes, or 20 minutes on a Sunday. The service runs from the car park just outside Dartmouth on the A3122, where it joins with the A379 by Lidls supermarket, to Dartmouth town centre. Postcode reference TQ6 9LW.

Tickets can be obtained from the pay and display machines in the car parks. The tickets are in two parts: one to show the bus driver; and one must be displayed on the car. The driver will issue a zero value return ticket to everyone that boards the bus, this must be shown to the driver for the return journey.

Dogs are permitted on the Park and Ride bus
